Squirrels are eating my pansy and petunia blossoms. Is there something I can spray (garlic, hot pepper) that will discourage them?
I've mentioned this before, but My grandmother-in-law feeds squirrels raccoons, stray cats, and whatever else might wander into her yard. They don't do any damage to her gardens (and they are beautiful) or house or anything else. But boy do thoose coons get impatient when she's late with the food!!! They had more than 20 of them at the peak time this year. there were four females with litters. If they could I'm sure they'd come right into the house. She has a special feeder just for the squirrels, Its basically a big glass (or plastic) bottle hung from a tree with a hole or two cut in the side. They climb into the bottle and then they are safe from predators (like hawks and cats) And then you get a perfect view of them as they snack.
